Community land trusts (CLTs) are set up and run by ordinary people to provide genuinely affordable housing, based on what people actually earn in their area.
Keeping families together
Thame CTL was registered with the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in March 2019. It aims to help local families by creating houses to buy or rent in and around Thame.
How CLTs work
Community Land Trusts buy land, build housing on it and then act as long-term stewards of that housing, ensuring that it remains genuinely affordable. Thame CLT is seeking a substantial grant from the Community Housing Fund with a few to taking site through to planning permission.
